I was just looking at Nicole on Wikipedia (Forgot about it among Fabian, Fay and Gonzalo) and came on here to ask the Bermudian posters who have been there for both how Humberto compared. It looks like the angle of approach was similar but a little to the south of Humberto, meaning that although the eye approached closer the territory was mostly on the left side of the storm, which may be why the impacts weren't as bad.

I live pretty close to where I lived for Fay and Gonzalo and I definitely say that the wind seemed much more intense with Humberto than it did with those two storms. At one point you could see the whole window frame bending thankfully everything held up though!

It almost looks like a TC core with a cold front trailing from it. :eek:

Strangely, NHC has dropped 06Z intensity from 110 kt down to 100 kt. No idea why.

That was worse than Fabian. Multiple weather stations reporting 100 mph sustained with 128+ gusts. Not sure about the elevation of those stations but the damage looks like Cat 2-3. Definitely more than Cat 1. Stronger than anyone was expecting but fortunately not stronger than we prepared for.

EquusStorm wrote:Yeah I don't recall a modern hurricane being boosted that much baroclinically either. Obviously being in the right rear of a jet max is helping it tremendously but usually that's in the form of slower weakening, not jumping almost a whole category when it's already a major; just don't see a storm this intense continue to intensify or even hold steady near the cat 4 threshold (and despite plausible evidence and even a pressure to support it I kinda doubt they'll make that jump til the postseason if at all) when beginning extratropical transition often. Might join Hazel and the Long Island Express in that rare category. Super fascinating, but extraordinarily bad news for Bermuda.


What is a jet max?

Last advisory had a gale diameter of 760 miles. If the Wikipedia list is accurate, that makes it the sixth largest Atlantic tropical cyclone on modern record.

...but still, though, a lot more interesting than the 2013 season.

Not a meteorologist, in fact more of an idiot than anything. You should probably check with the NHC or a local NWS office for official information.

I guess the jet stream extends over a wider latitude range than I thought.

No loss of life in Bermuda, minimal damage from reports I've seen. Considering Gonzalo wasn't retired and Humberto, as a name, has already visited Bermuda twice now... I think we will see him again in 2025.
